Chapter 4: St.Patrick,the Church and the Vikings
Transcript of Chapter 4: St.Patrick,the Church and the Vikings
The Vikings came to the north of Ireland too. Story : One day two different Vikings ships came to a beautiful place in Ulster. Both groups of Vikings wanted to stay there and build a town, but there were too many of them. The two groups of Vikings looked at each other angrily. ' We must fight,' said a Viking form the first ship. The winners will live and keep the land , and the losers will die.
No , said the man of the second ship. I have a better idea . Let's race to the beach in our ships . The first man who holds the land in his hand can keep it. His people can stay , and the others must leave'. So the two ships raced towards the beach . One man stood at the front of each ship , ready to jump down to the beach . Then one ship went in front to the other . The man in the first ship looked back at the second ship , and laughed . ' We 're going to win,' he said . This land will belong to us'.
No ,it won't , said the man of the second ship angrily. You will never win . Suddenly , he took out his sword , and cut off his hand with it . Then he threw the hand over the heads of themen in the first ship . The hand fell on the beach , and its bloody fingers closed on the land. This is our land , said the man with one hand . It will never belong to you . Never never , never! That is the story of the Red Hand of Ulster . You can see the Red Hand on the flags of northern Ireland . To learn why it is so important , we need to learn a little more about Irish history. THE END
